FABCYCLE is a collection service of textile waste. We work directly with local apparel manufacturers like factories, fashion designers and schools to collect the scraps, off-cuts, deadstock and ends of rolls that are left during the apparel production process and reuse or recycle what they cannot use.
Our mission is to divert textile waste from the landfill by finding creative solutions, promoting the sustainable mindset of waste as a resource.
In February 2019, we opened the Textile Waste ReUSE Centre in Vancouver, B.C. We acknowledge that we are operating on the traditional, ancestral and unceded lands of the Coast Salish peoples: Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō, Shíshálh (Sechelt), Səl̓ílwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
The purpose of the ReUSE Centre is to provide an open and inclusive physical space for the local creative community to come together and experiment with textile waste.
We encourage artists, designers and creative minds of all skill levels, backgrounds, orientations and identities to experiment with scraps and deadstock fabric and come up with innovative and exciting ideas to divert textile waste from the landfill.
